This backpack is so beautiful! What first struck me is the fabric! So I made my complement of awe to Stephanie and do you know what she said? This fabric is just plain canvas. But….. Stephanie spent hours painting the canvas to make it just right.
You can see in the second picture just how she created the flowers on the flap and the backside.
Oh. and look at all the hardware she used: swivel clips, d rings, rivets/grommets, and plastic slides.
This project was well planned so you can only guess how long it took to make? 12 hours! Wow, what patience. (I can imagine this does not include the shopping time to pick out all the supplies.) The bag is a little smaller than a regular backpack, about 12″ wide and 16″ tall. Stephanie plans to use it for the summer and made it just large enough to fit her sketchbook, sweater and water bottle.
Stephanie is the woman behind Soluci where she provides a little bit of handmade, vintage, and craft items.
